According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Panthers are now 7-point home favorites to knock off the Bills after opening as 8-point favorites. As for the total, the number currently sits at 43 after hitting the board at 42.
The Bills have been a poor bet to cover on the road, failing to cash in four of their last five games away from Buffalo. They're also 1-4 at the betting window in their last five games following a victory and are 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games overall.
The Panthers have now covered the spread in four of their last five games dating back to last season, but are just 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven home games. They're also winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: This game won't jump out to most bettors as being a good 'over' play, but I like it nonetheless. The over is 6-1 in the Bills' last seven games coming off a win, is 10-3 in their last 13 games overall, and has cashed in all four of Buffalo's last four games after allowing less than 15 points in its previous game. On the other side, the over is a perfect 7-0 in the Panthers' last seven games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.
